companies. it was head quartered out in los angeles. we merged with this other large carrier which you all know, a merger back in 1989. so it brought me from chicago to indianapolis which is a strong republican state. and i'm a strong obama person. i work the polls in my district. i'm a democratic judge. but the state of indiana, as i say again, it went blue back in two thorks eight, but right now i don't see that happening again. it was almost a miracle. but one thing about the romney ryan ticket, they stand behind the right to work. and those jobs for right to work are less paying jobs. they may bring more jobs to the state, but they will not bring high paying jobs. so i stand behind obama biden ticket. they have not said a lot about jobs not right to work jobs, jobs like -- he brought up the automobile industries which were strong paying jobs. host: right. thomas, we're going to leave you there. host: you've been doing this for a long time. have you ever been contacted by an administration. in all your time there how separate is b.l.s. from the politics? guest: we've never been contacte

is it like to try to report on this territory that is kind of like los angeles during earthquakes season? things keep moving around? >> it is pretty fun. is pretty frustrating. it is always just a practical task of reporting on what we are calling dark money here. you are reporting a net huge sums of money with almost no idea, with minimal ability to engage with people in charge of the money. and only an idea of how it is being spent, which again picked up by trekking advertising buys, mailing expenditures. but what it has brought home to me, and i think about the fundamental issues about the speech of regulation and it all raises, and one thing we are dancing around here about 501(c)4 is that we have an irs, basically a taxing agency that is in forcing groups of armed force in my political in their outlook. you have groups that operate, go around that blend what we would traditionally considered lobbying and the grass roots lobbying and issue advocacy with stuff that is more obviously election oriented. it raises a real challenge for advocates of regulation. you begin to have to decide

in los angeles and in south dakota. last night its population in 2010 was 6. that is rural. living in both extremes, i believe the rural people need more broadband, more than urban people do, because they don't have access to the schools or the hospitals or the retailers like the urban people have readily accessible. second, broadband being the problem, the problem is not so much from a technology perspective, because it's not that hard to engineer the broadband networks. i looked a little while ago. vantage point engineered about $1.5 billion worth of broadband networks over the last four or five years. engineering them is not that difficult. even implementing them is not that difficult. the difficulty is in paying for them. especially in the rural areas, is expensive. -- it is expensive. you look at a lot of the small telephone companies that serve rural areas, although they have been pretty good about putting fiber in their network, they still have a lot of copper. the last time a lot of these companies had a major upgrade is when they went from multi-party lines to a single par

of neighboring communities, all the way to the city of los angeles. i've called for two congressional hearings as soon as possible into the matter of the salt and sea. but dr. ruiz, this thing you're bickering about bickering is getting old. i'd like to point to people -- >> time, congresswoman. >> thank you. >> dr. ruiz, you have 30 seconds. >> yes. this is another example of a failed promise and failure to lead. she's had 14 years and we see she is still talking about the same thing. nothing has happened. nothing has got done. the other thing is -- and i think one of the reasons is because you're so out of touch, you're so out of sight. you're harder to find than waldo unless people pay to see you. it's very difficult. so we have to make sure that we have true leadership and bring people together in a forum, you know, so that we can start solving this problem. >> all right, thank you so much. we're continuing along now. erica with the next question. >> congresswoman, the tenor much the campaign has certainly changed in recent weeks. dr. ruiz's campaign has painted you as an out of tutch beau
